Daily Farm Report (3/30)

Welcome to the March 30th installment of The Daily Farm Report! We rake the news for each organization’s top farmhands and give you a digest with some commentary for you greedy prospectors to enjoy. Here are some recent news and highlights:

Alec Bohm
Phillies #1 by MLB Pipeline

Alec Bohm To Start Season At A-Full

Bohm was the Phillies 1st round choice (3rd overall) in this past summer’s draft. In his professional debut last summer, Bohm reached Short-Season ball. As a high pick and an advanced college bat, Bohm should be able to handle this placement with aplomb. The upside for him is really high if he can figure everything out.

Osiris Johnson
Marlins #12 by MLB Pipeline

Osiris Johnson Suffers Tibial Stress Fracture: Out 5-6 Months

Really terrible news for a very exciting prospect. Johnson, 18, was the Marlins 2nd round choice in the 2018 draft. A cousin of Jimmy Rollins, Johnson made it to A-Full ball as a 17-year-old last season. While the injury is obviously a big setback, the kid still has a smorgasbord of tools and is still extremely young. Even with this year lost to development, he could still be climbing up the minors as a teenager next season. Best of luck to Osiris with his recovery.

Logan Webb
Giants #5 by MLB Pipeline

Logan Webb To Report to AA Richmond

Webb, 22, is on a steady track to make his MLB debut with the next year to year and a half. He made 6 starts at AA last year, so if everything goes well, look for him to gain a mid-season promotion to AAA and then have the opportunity to win a job in spring training next year. Last year was his first full season back from TJS, and it looks like the injury is well behind him at this point. He boasts a heavy fastball that sits 93-96 and touched 98 in spring training.

C.J. Alexander
Braves #23 by MLB Pipeline

C.J. Alexander to Start With AA Mississippi

C.J. Alexander, Atlanta’s 20th round pick in last year’s draft, is getting an opening crack at AA baseball this season. MLB Pipeline has his MLB eta as 2021, but don’t be shocked if Alexander gets a shot at the bigs as soon as this season depending on the injury situation with the big club. Alexander, 22, is a physical player who also has the range and strong arm to play an above-average 3B. Late round steal by the Braves last year, should be on your watch list for 2019.
